Fitness & Recreation

Alfred University students can stay fit and have fun — playing intramural sports with classmates, breaking a sweat in dance classes or enjoying the outdoors. We offer a variety of programs in order to provide the entire campus with the opportunity to stay active. There is something for everyone on campus! Students can be found at all hours of the day working out in the McLane Center or the Galanis Family Arena or attending one of our many group exercise classes.
